Disney knew it wouldn't recast Princess Leia in the new movie "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker." And a digital version of the late Carrie Fisher wouldn't do her or the character justice. But the director found another option.

Fisher, 60, died on December 27, 2016 of undetermined causes after suffering a cardiac event on a flight from London to Los Angeles.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, J.J. Abrams said he remembered there was still some unused footage of Fisher left over from the 2015 film "The Force Awakens" that could be incorporated into "Skywalker."

Abrams originally tried to write Lourd out of the scenes that included her mother in case it was too painful. But Lourd insisted she be in them. Abrams said some of those scenes include the two of them talking or touching.
